Q: Why is it significant that Yeshivas Pisga begins its year in January?
A: The year begins in January because for us Southerners that is actually the beginning of the year!! Most Yeshiva programmes begin in September which is pretty lousy for Southerners as they come in the middle and have a lot of catching up to do.
Q: Is there a subsidy for tuition?
A: Yes. Yeshivas Pisga is associated with MASA Israel. MASA is an organization that provides both a standard scholarship of $1000 U.S. per student, as well as a needs based scholarship of up to $10,000 U.S.. Once an applicant has been accepted to Yeshivas Pisga, we will assist with the application for a scholarship.
